Now online: SCM webinar ‘Innovating into the Future – Part I’

Sean Culey & Martijn Lofvers

For those who missed it: the webinar ‘Innovating into the Future – Part I’ on Wednesday September 9 is now available on YouTube. The webinar was organized by Martijn Lofvers of Supply Chain Media and author Sean Culey.

Technology is changing at a lightening pace, business realities are being altered, supply chains fractured, and geo-politics looks more unstable than ever. The resultant turbulence and uncertainty have made strategic decision more challenging than ever, whilst also elevating the risks of inaction. No wonder many companies are finding themselves paradoxically scared of rushing their next move, while also scared of not moving quickly enough.

What would help would be some kind of framework that helps understand environments, customers and capabilities existed, one that enables them to make smarter, more strategic and more pro-active decisions. A way to be on the front foot for once, not the back.

Sean Culey, Visiting Fellow at Cranfield and author of Transition Point, and Martijn Lofvers, CEO & Chief Trendwatcher of Supply Chain Media, discussed:

  • How to move from business strategy to supply chain execution in four steps
  • Why the world is so disruptive right now
  • The triple threat – and opportunity – of automation
  • Why the supply chain is becoming more personal, automated and local
  • Why companies need to go through a Copernican revolution
  • How to align customer needs with your strategy, and embed this throughout your organisation’s DNA and supply chain design
  • How to define your business model for success in this new wave
